Your brain might be slowing down sooner than you think!

A new study showed some people’s cognitive motor skills began to slowly diminish after 24 years old. Cognitive motor skills are the ability to process thoughts then react.

Researchers had people play a video game, Star-craft Two, in order to test their reaction time. They looked into the gamers’ performance, and found those in their early twenties were quicker than those in their late twenties.

However, it’s not all bad news for the older crowd. The same study found while their performance was slower, older people were craftier and replaced speed with strategy.
